The first song we heard off White Lung’s forthcoming Deep Fantasy, “Drown With The Monster,” was an unrelenting, ass-kicking noise/hardcore burner. The new “Snake Jaw” finds the band in much more melodic territory, with no drop-off in intensity. It’s not hard to hear hints of Hole’s Live Through This here, especially in frontwoman Mish Way’s sneering, snarling vocal, although the frenetic guitars have more in common with the post-hardcore of Jawbox or Drive Like Jehu. It’s another excellent song from what’s shaping up to be an excellent album. Listen.
